The Blue and Yellow are unbeaten in the last four home games.

Sweden have a lot of work to do, to put their name among the best teams in the world. The team found themselves in the UEFA Nations League C after being dropped due to a series of poor performances.

This is a transition period for the team who are starting to adapt to Jon Dahl Tomasson who has brought his methods into the side. In the last friendly, they lost to Denmark by a 2-1 score line and will now face Serbia in this friendly match before they take on Azerbaijan in September’s Nations League matches. 

Serbia suffered a defeat in the last friendly against Austria as they were second best throughout the match. They now face a Sweden side in their final friendly before heading to take on England in the opening match of Euro 2024.

The Eagles are drawn into Group C alongside England, Denmark and Slovenia. With the firepower they have upfront, they can trouble any side that comes their way in the Euro 2024.
